Clean Air is for the birds…and people too! The Group Against Smog & Pollution is a longstanding local nonprofit working to improve air quality in southwestern Pennsylvania (on whose board I serve). This fun-filled evening will celebrate our work and encourage everyone to continue to fight for clean air in our region.
Enjoy admission to the National Aviary on Pittsburgh’s North Side, delicious food and drink, and silent and pick-a-prize auctions. Kids can decorate cookies and take home their own pollution catcher. Bird expert Kate St. John will be a guest speaker; you can see her bird and nature blog at birdsoutsidemywindow.org. We’ll also have personal bird encounters with an owl, a bird of prey, and a penguin -- and an up-close look at Malayan Flying Foxes!
GASP Board Member Walter Goldburg, PhD will also be honored at this event with a Lifetime Achievement Award, for his work with GASP since…before GASP even existed! Learn more about Walter in a past newsletter article about him.
6-9 p.m. at the National Aviary (700 Arch Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15212 - View Map)
